TAIPEI, Taiwan — Chunghwa Post (中華郵政) has returned to sender a plan to halve
The postal service previously said it would close half its post offices that opened on Saturdays, citing the impact of the new “one fixed, one flexible” day off labor rule.
However, on a request from the Transportation Ministry for the company to consider public needs, Chunghwa Post Deputy General Manager Wang Shu-ming (王淑敏) said Tuesday that the company would abandon the plan to cut weekend service.
Minus A Half Hour
Currently, post offices that offer weekend service are open from 8:30 a.m. to noon. From Feb. 25, most Taiwan post offices will stay open on Saturday, though they will open a half-hour later at 9 a.m. and close at noon. [FULL STORY]
